The Lovereading4Kids comment

First Reading: Level One.

The Aesop's fable showing that you shoudn't judge your friends on their size and strength. Level One titles are designed to be the first real books a beginner reader will tackle and are designed to foster a lasting enthusiasm for books and reading. They are 32 pages in length, comprising the main story (up to 150 words), from classic tales to folk tales, delightful illustrations and 6 pages of fun, reading-related puzzles. Will be enjoyed with equal enthusiasm if read alone or together with a parent.

Synopsis

The Lion And The Mouse by Mairi Mackinnon

A tiny mouse disturbs King Lion's afternoon nap. 'Don't kill me!' she begs. 'Maybe I can save your life too, one day'. King Lion doesn't believe it - but when he is in real trouble, he learns that even little friends can be great friends.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
